Jason Noll takes second at the 2009 E-TOC!
Jason flew very consistently and precisely capturing second overall at the 2009 E-TOC. Both Jason and fellow team member Andrew Jesky suffered zero's when they unknownly flew out of bounds on a couple of flights. This was due to a misunderstanding by almost all of the pilots of where the zero line was. However, Jason battled back with near-perfect flights to capture second.
It was clear that Jason had his freestyle perfectly matched to the rules as he also captured the title of Freestyle Champion. This prestigious award is presented to the pilot with the highest overall score in the Freestyle segment of the competition.
Congratulations to Jason and all Team Futaba members for another great performance at the E-TOC.

Futaba is proud to announce the signing of one of the best rock crawling legends of all time, Austin Dunn. Austin has not only won more regional/national events than anyone else, but he is always on the cutting edge when it comes to innovative designs and has helped push the crawling scene to the next level.
When asked why he made the switch to Futaba, Austin had this to say: "When the nationals are on the line, I want to have 110% confidence in my equipment. With Futaba, I now have that confidence. Also, with their new 4PK, I will be able to do things I only dreamed about…it really opens the door for innovation!"
With Austin as the latest addition to the crawling team, Futaba will be a force to reckon with in 2009…in other words, Futaba rocks!
First outing, first win!
Twelve hours after the Futaba GY520 gyro was made available in the United States for the first time (to a few Team Futaba members); team member Kyle Stacy rocked the 2009 E-Fest crowd with a win in the Heli Smack-Down!
Kyle's routine was awesome and full of high energy. When it came down to the crowd voting for the winner, there was absolutely no doubt who the winner was; the armory absolutely exploded with applause and yelling for Kyle!
Kyle flew the Miniature Aircraft Furion (distributed exclusively by Great Planes) with a Futaba 7C and the GY520 using a S9257 servo for tail control.
Thanks Kyle, for trusting in the new GY520 and for this awesome win at E-Fest! Kyle does, in fact, ROCK!
